DOMO Chemicals Inaugurates New Production Line in Mahape, Navi Mumbai
Driven by strong demand for its polyamide-based solutions across the automotive, electrical & electronics, consumer and industrial goods sectors, DOMO Chemicals has experienced impressive double-digit growth in its overall Asian operations and is therefore expanding its capacity across Asia.

With a gradual total capacity of 8 KT of high-quality engineered materials based on polyamide, our state-of-the-art factory is now equipped with the latest technology to serve our customers in India.
